Origin

Dunyazad is the younger sister of Queen Scheherazade. In the story cycle, it is she who, at Scheherazade's instruction, initiates the tactic of cliffhanger storytelling to prevent her sister's execution by the king. Dunyazad, brought to her sister's bedchamber so that she could say farewell before Scheherazade's execution the next morning, asks her sister to tell one last story. At the successful conclusion of the tales, Dunyazad marries the king's younger brother.
